Miami-Dade County Public Schools, including charters, are closed for the week in tacit acknowledgement that pretty much everyone takes the week off anyway. I’ll be working from home — something I do quite often — and looking forward to sharing the holiday with friends. Last summer I had made tentative plans to spend the holiday with my mom in Cincinnati, but she had other plans. So we will lift a glass in her memory of the many Thanksgivings we spent around the family table in Perrysburg, Northport Point, and the last time they visited Miami, in 2008.
So, are you traveling this holiday week or staying home?
